Mark, Give this a try with your garlic. I made it this week and its just so killer. Its really a garlic emulsion.
4 heads of peeled garlic (can actually use more)
1 TBLS of kosher salt
Add to food processor, pulse until the garlic turns into a paste. the run the processor until the garlic is a smooth thick paste.
Drizzle in a refined vegetable oil (safflower, canola, corn...) NOT Olive OIL. maybe a cup per four heads of garlic until the garlic resembles creamy horseradish sauce.
Add 1/4 cup of Greek yogurt and 1/2 lemon.
Check seasoning. I use a pinch of Fresh Fruit (citric acid) to stabilize it too.
Its a Lebanese condiment. Crazy good.
You know garlic is stupid easy to grow right? Buy a pound, grow your own and have enough to last a year!1
that's what I did last fall. Bought a bunch of heads at the natural food store, planted last fall and just cut off the scapes to make pesto, the garlic should be ready fairly soon!
